|The Multi-Site Church|
La Iglesia Multi-sitio
The multi-site church is a phenomenon that you will no doubt be hearing about in the future. An estimated 100 to 200 churches nationwide are experimenting with this concept: one church (meaning one staff, one board, one budget) meeting in multiple locations, usually with the various sites developing unique personalities yet sharing the same "brand identity" and DNA.
One purpose of the church is to reach the unchurched; but the reality is that most people in America wonít travel more than 15 miles or twenty minutes to attend a church service. And with the current cost of fuel that distance and time may diminish. So whatís the average evangelistic church to do? One option is to go multi-site: one church with multiple locations. Itís a new version of an old principle: If the people wonít come to the church, bring the church to people (or at least to their neighborhood). River Winds Community Church has a vision for helping to plant and launch new churches as a means towards building the kingdom of God.
